Nuclear Track Image Intensifier

Description: "The design of the nuclear track intensifier was further analyzed to compare performance with design objectives. A preliminary analysis of the electron optics showed that the tube design suffers a small degree of astigmatism, which is increased in actual tabes by misalignment of parts, One tube was successfully completed and tested. Transit time of electrons from cathode to screen was determined to be 2.5 x 10/sup -8/ sec, 0.5 x 10/sup -8/ sec. Decay characteristics of several standard phosphor… more

Status Report on the Pneumatic Temperature Measuring system Studies for the EGCR

Description: The pneumatic temperature probe (PIM) is a device for measuring gas temperatures by utilizing the dependency of the flow of gases through a restriction on the temperature and pressure conditions. The determination is made by measuring critical mass flow across a restrictive element such as a nozzle and by knowing the upstream pressure and other variables pertinent to the critical flow equation, computing the temperature at the entrance to the restrictive element. In practice it has been found u… more

Steady-State Radial and Axial Temperature Profiles of an E. G. C. R. 5 1/2" O. D. Through Tube During 1500 KW Operation - Part II

Description: The steady-state radial and axial temperature profiles of an E. G. C. R. 5 1/2" O. D. through tube are determined for the test condition of an attemperated fuel assembly operating at 1500 KW in the loop.

After Shutdown Heating in the HFIR

Description: After shutdown heating rates have been calculated for the target, control plates, and the beryllium reflector of the HFIR. Hilvety previously calculated the after shutdown heating rates in the element and his results are reported in ORNL CP-60-4-110. Decay times of 1.0 10, 10^2, 10^3, 10^4, and 10^5 seconds have been considered, and heat fluxes have been computed for all of the mentioned components. The greatest heat fluxes were found to be at the surfaces of the control plates and the permanen… more

Progress Report for August-September 1960

Description: A chemical flowsheet is proposed for recovery of strontium and rare earths from Purex wastes. The iron in the waste is first complexed with tartrate and the pH is adjusted with caustic. Strontium and rare earths are extracted by a solvent comprised of di(2-ethylhexyl)phosphoric--sodium di (2-ethylhexyl) phosphate--tributyl phosphate -- Amsco 125-82. and are stripped with nitric acid. Processing the strip product through additional solvent extraction cycles yields isolated, concentrated strontiu… more

The Boundary Layer Between a Plasma and a Magnetic Field - I

Description: "The problem of a steady boundary layer or sheath between a plasma and a magnetic field is considered. A self-consistent transition layer is found which joins a uniform magnetic field at plus infinity with a collisionless field-free plasma region with arbitrary velocity distribution at minus infinity, i.e., a magnetic field profile is found such that the exact particle orbits in this field produce a current which gives rise to this field. An interesting feature of the solution is that, with any… more

Analysis of Uranium Fuel-Element Wafers from Atomics International for Uranium, Plutonium and Samarium

Description: Five irradiated and five unirradiated wafers were analyzed. Each wafer was analyzed for samarium by emission spectrography. The unirradiated wafers were analyzed for uranium by coulometric and potentiometric methods and for uranium isotopes by mass spectrometry. The irradiated wafers were analyzed for uranium and plutonium by coulometric methods, for plutonium isotopes by the 256-channel alpha pulse analyzer, and for the isotopes of uranium and of plutonium by mass spectrometry. The methods of … more

Dispersion Strengthening of Iron-Aluminum Base Alloys: A Feasibility Study

Description: The feasibility of improving the mechanical properties at 1700-1800°F of oxidation-resistant Fe-Al-Cr alloys by means of a refractory dispersion has been explored. A literature search was conducted, preliminary experimental determinations of properties of the alloy and its oxides were carried out, and certain mathematical relations between dispersion characteristics and metallurgical variables were derived. The results indicate that the alloys can be strengthened sufficiently by using a dispers… more

Prediction of Two-Phase Flow From Mixing Length Theory

Description: It is proposed in this report to describe a new two-phase flow mixing length model. It consists of treating the two-phase system as a continuous medium and applying to it the methods and assumptions so widely accepted in single-phase turbulent flow. Because it reduces a two-phase problem to an equivalent one in single-phase flow, the proposed model can be readily used to predict the effects of flow rate, channel geometry, and channel direction in two-phase flow.

Thalluim in Meteorites

Description: Procedures for the separation and concentration of microgram to nanogram amounts of thallium from gram amounts to galena and meteorite metal, sulfide, and silicate phases were developed and are described. The thallium is extracted from aqueous bromide of chloride solutions of moderate acidity using diethyl ether. A device for elimination of the large volumes of solvent by dropwise evaporation is described. Organic matter in the residue is destroyed by treatment with aqua regia, and the thall… more

Thermal-Neutron Flux at the HRE-2 Core Wall, Determined from Zircaloy-2 Induced-Activity Measurements During Runs 13, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 and 21.

Description: The thermal-neutron flux prevailing near the upper hole in the HRE-2 core wall was determined from measurements of the induced activity in a specimen cut from the edge of the hole. The specimen was removed following run 21 and was thus exposed to reactor neutrons during runs 13, 14, 16,17, 18. 19, 20, and 21. The neutron flux, calculated for an average core power level of 2 Mw, was 2.8 x10^13 neutrons/cm^2 sec. the core wall area from which the specimen was removed was located approximately 16-… more

Analog Computer Analysis of the Thermal Behavior of the EDCR Due to Reactivity Accidents

Description: The ORNL analog computer was used to examine one aspect of a safety system for the EGCR. The thermal behavior of the fuel as a result of increases in reactivity at various power levels and gas flows was examined. Safety actions initiated by wither a flux-minus-flow signal or a reactor outlet gas temperature signal were included in simulation.

On the Green's Function for Two-Dimensional Magnetohydrodynamic Waves. II

Description: "As an extension of an earlier paper the Green's function is evaluated for the Lundquist equation linearized about uniform magnetic field, constant matter density, and zero flow velocity. It is assumed that all quantities are functions of two space variables and time only. In the general magnetic field configuration considered here a pure Alfvén disturbance no longer exists; there is instead a wave with properties of both the Alfvén and fast‐slow disturbance."
